Google is enhancing the security threshold for installing apps on older versions of its mobile operating system. Beginning with Android 15, apps must target at least Android 7.0 Nougat to be downloaded in parallel. This move aims to safeguard mobile devices by blocking insecure apps that lack the most recent security features.

Android 15 Developer’s second preview introduces a new security feature that prevents the installation of apps with an SDK level lower than 24 outside the Google Play Store. This change aligns with Google’s efforts to improve the safety and performance of its mobile operating system, protecting users from malicious apps.

If you attempt to download an app targeting an outdated version of Android, a warning dialog will appear informing you that the app has been blocked due to security concerns. This move reflects Google’s ongoing commitment to ensuring that apps are compatible with modern security standards, just as Android 6.0 Marshmallow did when it was released in 2015 and brought significant changes to enhance battery life and privacy protection.

This update follows a similar one made with Android 14, requiring apps to be compatible with at least Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The continued evolution of Android’s security features demonstrates Google’s dedication to providing users with a secure and safe mobile experience.
